Here you help out people to correctly say various artists or bands' names phonetically so you don't look like some chump off the street.

Been fucking with Dawn Richard for the past week. Working my way up to her new album. Been doing that with most artists, starting from the bottom and shit. Gettin' that tr00 factor going in to their lauded new.

But I had just been informed from a radio interview that Dawn Richard is

Dawn Ree-shard.

A few that spring to mind:

Hüsker Dü = "hoosker doo"
Neu! = "noy"
Autechre = "aw-tek-er"

Apologies if I've told this story before, but at a radio station I was working at when "If I Had No Loot" was a hit, the music director INSISTED that the group's name was properly pronounced "Tone-ee Tone-ee Tone". Two of us DJs were certain it was "Tone-ee Tone-ee Tone-ee", pointing out that we'd heard that elsewhere and that this made sense and all, but the MD stuck to his guns.

Until we finally noticed that in the record itself, they said "Tone-ee Tone-ee Tone-ee has done it again!" That, he had to admit, was definitive.

OTOH, when the Fugees first hit (I was at a different station by then), I thought it was "few-gees", because I read it was short for "refugees". I think I was closer than some DJs, though! (It should, of course, be "foo-gees".)

...Elevators, know that. But now I have 'Jeer-om-ee jone jone' stuck in my head. Which kanye song is that, it's annoying me.

Yeah that one I didn't know for so long. It didn't help that they never came up in any conversation I've had whatsoever.
